We have returned to our traditional Mass schedule: Saturday, 5:30pm and Sunday. 9:00am & 11:30am.
Please join us each weekend under the tents! If you plan on attending, please wear a mask and bring your own chair (if you want to sit).
If you are in the vulnerable category (or you are sick), we ask that you stay safe and stay home. PLEASE do not jeopardize your health or the health of others! The Bishop continues to waive the obligation of the faithful to attend Mass, so there is no reason to place yourself in danger.
Weekday Masses are held in the Church-Our weekday Mass schedule: Mon., Wed., and Fri. at 5:30pm. 


The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated Saturday's from 4:00-5:00 pm in the church. 
Please note the following changes:
-For safety reasons, the Sacrament will be celebrated in the Minister's sign in room in the gathering space (This room is on the right just before you enter the sanctuary). Penitents will stand. Reconciliation can be face to face or behind a screen (for anonymity).
-The children's room and Sanctuary will be closed during reconciliation.
-Maintain proper social distancing while waiting in the gathering space.
-A mask must be worn.
Persons uncomfortable with these guidelines can call the parish office to make an appointment with Fr. Jack to celebrate the sacrament.

 
The deSales Chapel continues to be open 24/7 for prayer. All are welcome to stop in for quiet prayer/meditation.
